OGT Launches 9 New High-Intensity, Low-Background Cytocell Aquarius FISH Probes

publication date: Aug 1, 2016
author/source: Oxford Gene Technology

Cytocell Aquarius® probe range expanded in response to high customer demand

New Cytocell AquariusOxford Gene Technology (OGT), The Molecular Genetics Company, has further expanded its extensive catalogue of fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) products with nine new Cytocell Aquarius® probes. The range now includes ETV6 Proximal Probe Green, ETV6 Distal Probe Red, MPO Probe Red, TP53 Probe Green, NUP214 Probe Red, DEK Probe Green, TAS2R1 (5p15.31) Probe Green, Chromosome 9 Satellite III Probe Aqua and Chromosome 15 Alpha Satellite Probe Red. These cost-effective and quality-assured probes produce specific, high-intensity signals with excellent contrast and minimal background for the utmost confidence in results. Optimised for use on common sample types, the probes are also pre-mixed in hybridisation buffer, increasing ease of use and reducing errors in the laboratory.

Highlighting OGT’s renowned customer service, the new additions to the range have been developed in response to high customer demand via the Cytocell myProbes® FISH probes service. This custom probe design and manufacturing service enables OGT customers to purchase unique, fully quality-assured FISH probes for virtually any sequence in the entire human genome using the proprietary Cytocell BAC clone collection.

Faidra Partheniou, Haematology product manager at OGT explained, ‘These new probes are a real testament to the way OGT listens and responds to customer needs. We had a lot of people requesting these genes via our myProbes® service so we wanted to make them readily available. Our dedicated customer support also ensures that we’re consistently there for our customers with expert advice and evaluation support. OGT offers the largest portfolio of FISH probes available and we look forward to announcing further new probes in the near future.’

The new additions to the Cytocell Aquarius® probe range are currently only available within North America as analyte specific reagents (ASRs), analytical and performance characteristics are not established. CE-marked IVD versions for sale in Europe are anticipated.
